South Lanarkshire College achieves NUS Responsible Futures accreditation mark
10th July 2015
EAUC Member South Lanarkshire College has won an award for embedding sustainability and social responsibility into their curriculum.
13 institutions across the UK took part in the Responsible Futures pilot this year, all demonstrating their commitment to creating an environment for education for sustainable development to thrive.
Recently, the pilot group of Responsible Futures students' unions and institutions were nominated for the first ever UNESCO-Japan prize for Education for Sustainable Development (ESD)
Piers Telemacque, NUS Vice President (Society and Citizenship) commented:
“Whether they’re studying business, hair and beauty, care, horticulture, construction, or whatever, our education system has to help students leave their institutions as part of the solution to our sustainability problems. Reforming the curriculum is a huge part of this. Shaping education is the first step to shaping the whole of society, and I can’t wait to see South Lanarkshire College build on their Responsible Futures accreditation in the years to come”.
Following an audit, South Lanarkshire College was rewarded for their achievements at the annual NUS Sustainability Roundtable in Manchester on 18 June.
